2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Last car was a BMW X5. At first I thought the Tribeca was on par. NO way! Have had a number of mechanical issues which my dealer does not know how to fix -- front left tire loses air, center console foam compressed, high pitched noise at certain speeds. Subaru has shown no interest in addressing my issues. I was looking to install blue-tooth which is not a factory option. The proprietary cd/radio has made that challenging. Lots of noise in the cabin while driving. The ride is not as firm as the BMW X5. The back-up camera is a very nice feature and the heated seats work well. The less than 16 gallon gas tank is way too small. Gas mileage has been 15 city 18 highway.
Back-up camera, heated seats
Doors do not close easily, larger gas tank, Eliminate cabin noise, blue- tooth capability, non-proprietary radio, better center console top, updated maps on nav system, better customer care
